Was Anyone Else Let Down By The Dr. Who Season Finale?

Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor

Ok..

First let me say that I was NOT thrilled that David Tennant :: the 10th Doctor :: was leaving after last season.

I’m not a huge Sci Fi fan and had never heard of Dr. Who before I met Chief but I fell in love with the show primarily because I fell in love with David Tennant.

Shhh!! Don’t tell anyone!!

So after watching last season’s finale and threw all my girly, weepy, sentimental bullshit tears, I firmly stated:

I WILL NOT LIKE THE NEW DOCTOR!!

Chief was all like, “.. give him a chance!” Mainly because he was worried that our Saturday routine would be ruined.. but I was like NO! NO! I WILL NOT LIKE THE  NEW DOCTOR.

And so when this season started.. I was all prepared to NOT LIKE THE NEW DOCTOR and only watched to prove my point that the 11th Doctor was going to suck major ass but then a funny thing happened.

I LOVE THE NEW DOCTOR!

If David Tennant was the source of wet dreams, then Matt Smith is like the friend you grew up with that you suddenly find yourself with a crush on.

It’s a girl thing. Ok?

Anyway.. so I was just as into Dr. Who this season as I was last and was a little put off that the season was going to end so soon with a two parter.

Part 1 was AWESOME! The Doctor gets hoodwinked by all his enemies and gets locked into an unbreakable box, the Pandorica. It was brilliant writing! Brilliant acting! And I sobbed at the end because not only was it the end of the season but the Doctor was LOCKED in a BOX!!

And so all week I waited anxiously for Part 2 and guess what?

It sucked.

This unbelievable series that has a way to make you believe that what is going on is true had the lamest.. most UNbelievable unbelievable episode that left me saying, “.. you’re fucking kidding me, right???”

So let me ask all you Dr. Who fans out there…

Did you have the same reaction as me or am I just a sill girl who likes looking at cute English guys??

    I couldn’t have said it better. I’m still trying to warm up to him and I do think he is funny. But we watched the ending, again, and again because we couldnt’ understand what the hell was going on. At least when Ten would say, “timey wimey” you kind of got it. I think Moffatt was having a severe OCD moment, he kept turning the lights off and on…over and over. By the time it was over with it was pleasant to just sit in the dark with some peace and quiet.

    I know what you mean, KC .. I’ve taken to watching the show with Close Captioning on because not only is his accent difficult to understand but the speed in which he talks makes it impossible.

    My husband’s theory is that they used the ending as an “out” in case Matt Smith didn’t work out as the doctor. How else would the Tardis explode.. warming the earth like the sun.. and then have the Doctor fly into the enter of it in the Pandorica?

    And actually, that’s the only thing that I can tell you what happened.. the rest is lost on me..

    Although.. I’m still trying to work out the whole River Song deal ..

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.. much appreciated
